Default RE: what is the best RC transmiter out there?

seriously this is like asking which DSLR is the best and which lenses do i need.

if you look back 25-30 years, a highend 7ch was over 500 bucks..................spend that much now and you'll end up with a radio that will knock the socks off anything made back then that was top of the line.

first you need to pick a brand that you think looks good to you as some of todays Tx boxes look absolutely absurd.
once you do that, then decide how many channels you think will suffice for your intended projects.
beyond that and making sure it's a 2.4Ghz system, then everything you want in servos, batteries and misc are all there for the taking so long as you have the money.

the cheapest Futaba 6 ch 2.4 system is more than most guys will ever need, and it's a rock solid system as is JR, and others.
